Wayne Thomas Morrison, 55

Jan 18, 2022

Wayne Thomas Morrison, age 55, of Onset, MA, passed away January 15, 2022, after a brief illness.

Wayne was born in Wareham, MA, and resided in Onset, MA, for many years. He had a passion for music, which took him all over the world. He spent many years traveling with various rock and roll bands. 

Wayne combined his passion for music with his desire to help the less fortunate when he co-founded and created the Rock 4 X-Mas Foundation 25 years ago with his longtime friend, Stet Howland. Wayne created Rock 4 X-Mas in 1996 and has helped countless families and schools since then.

Wayne had a zest for life and never took a moment for granted especially after receiving a heart transplant in 2019. Wayne lived with so much gratitude towards the team of medical professionals at Tufts Medical Center, who gave him his new heart and provided the most extraordinary care.

Wayne was the loving father of and survived by three children, his son Wayne “Christopher” Morrison, and his twin daughters Alicia and Ashley Owens, grandfather to six grandchildren Camden, Kylie, Khloe, Kaliyah, Mila, and Ahlani, his siblings, Joanne Morrison, Brian Morrison, Bruce Morrison and Elizabeth Morrison. He also leaves behind his nephews Evan and Nate, his niece Emily, his longtime companion Tina, as well as, extended family and friends. 

Wayne is predeceased by his father Wayne Morrison, his mother Allison Morrison, and his brother Leslie Morrison.

A celebration of his life will be held at a later date.
